“Laurel” or “Yanny”? The Audio Clip That’s Puzzling Us All

“Laurel” or “Yanny”? The Audio Clip That’s Puzzling Us All

It’s been three years since the dress that stumped the internet. 

When the mother of a bride sent her daughter this photo, causing a disagreement over its color that would spread so widely, its hashtag would amass over 10 million mentions within the post’s first week.

This debate garnered viral attention after a friend of the bride’s posted the image on Tumblr and no one on the internet could agree on what they saw. 

Earlier today, a new kind of controversy sparked across Twitter when people were asked to pick which of these words they hear in this clip:

It’s basically the audio equivalent of the dress debacle all over again.

Most of us can only hear one of the words (names?)

#TeamLaurel all the way.

Others, after searching long and hard, are still torn between the options.

Admittedly, some are more dedicated to this debate than others:

As it turns out,

Apparently, you can hear “yanny” at a low volume with little to no bass and “laurel” when the volume and bass are high.

It’s tripping everyone out and lowkey making us question everything.

Oh, internet, where will we go from here.

Freckle Tattoos Are The Latest Trend That's Puzzling The Internet

Yeah, so this is really something people are really doing: getting freckles tattooed on their face, in the same vein of cosmetic tattooing as eyebrow tattoos. Eyebrow tattoos seemed to really catch on, so this could genuinely sweep the country. Get used to the thought: the freckles you’re seeing on that stylish girl in front of you might be an expensive facade!

The tattooed freckles usually look very cute, which is good, because they’re semi-permanent—meaning they can last three years (some of the tattoos are, in fact, completely permanent, BuzzFeed warns).

Warning, however, if you’re thinking of getting tattooed freckles—when they’re first applied, they’re extremely dark, which can look weird until the ink fades.

Many people are really skeptical about the trend, of course, and I totally include myself in that group.

Like many of these people, I’ve had freckles all my life, and I haven’t always enjoyed them. But then I remembered that as I’ve gotten older, my freckles have faded a lot, to the point where they’re not even noticeable if it isn’t summer. I do genuinely wish they were darker again!

Enough to get them tattooed back on? Well, maybe not.

I might not have consistent freckles, but at least no one is poking my face with a needle.
